S. Richard Fuller at his initial lec

and Mri. Louis C. Nash on behalf of
the destitute gentlewomen of France
predicted that the American people
who hare already given generously
to the war sufferers of other coun
tries will be asked for unparalleled
Certainly the tide of asking seems
to be increasing now. for after one
cause has been well begun another
arises to which we are asked to give
our supporp. "The cry is. 'Still they
come. But we. as a nation, are do
ing comparatively little for the suffer
ing, statistics show. France an
Enarland. of course, are straining al
their resources and such small coun
tries as Tasmania. Australia and New

Members ot theT'ranco-Belgian relief
society were almost forced to regret
tneir promise not to charge admission

ple, however, sought an opportunity
to contribute to the cause and Father
l.loyd B. Holsapple held the hat for
those charitably inclined. The ball
room was packed and those who
could not obtain seats stood for an
hour in any points of vantage. .'

slant at the six months' bread con
tract awarded by the county com

tract with the U. P. Baking company
to furnish bread for' the next six
months at 4i rents a pound. At the
beginning of 191ft a years contract
was made providing for the staff of
lite at Yt cents a pound. And the
bakers claim they won't wax rich on
the contract at that. About $'50
worth of bread is eaten each month
in the county institutions,
The Contract was made for the
'shorter period in the belief that Aour
prices will drop by fall,
With drug prices fluctuating and
soaring most of the time "way out
of sight" for some kinds, the county
fathers decided to reject all bids and

purchased each year for use in the

vantage of not Marrying a' Perfect
.. By MADGE ARTHUR.
It is said that a bad-tempered wom
an can cause more actual unpleasant
ness for the rest of humanity than
all the other disagreeable features one
finds in life, and the unlucky posses
sor of an' uncontrolled temper can
easily drive to ruin or to other women
the men whose misfortune it is to
move in her orbit.
Men are very mortal beings; they
are also very selfish, and they have
a tremendous fondness for having
their physical and mental comfort un
disturbed. The average bachelor prizes perma
nent peace and content above the
happiness of possessing a beautiful,
attractive creature for a wife, and he
knows that a bad-tempered woman
and peace do not go together.
He admires a spirited woman, but
he knows that a corresponding strong
will goes along with strong character,
and he expects her to exercise it.
The assertion from a woman that
she has a bad temper and is proud
of it has kept more than one worthy
man from asking her to share his
fortune as his wife.
The. woman who can control her
self under the most trying circum
stances is the woman who holds l)c
strongest power over mart.
No matter how beautiful and clever
and fascinating the bad-tempered
woman may be, or how lengthy her
bank account, her power is infinitesi
mal compared with that of her amia
And amiability is not only power,
it is mental progression and health
and happiness and long life to one's
self 'and to one s friends and family

yUsaft, g BAKING POWDER
By GARRETT P. SERVISS.
"What is the attitude of science re-
Igardlug Atlantis? It do not mean
j simply the submerged continent,
which is, 1 believe, generally conced
ed, but the Atlantis of Plato and Don
nelly, the seat and cenlcr of a high
civilization. C. C. M., Williainsport,
i Pa." s
It is like the attitude of science re
1 garding any other tradition which has
I no verifiable facts to support it. To
I concede the former existence of a
habitable country in the midst of the
Atlantic ocean demands no-extraor-'
dinary or unjustifiable credulity, be
cause it has been demonstrated not
only that broad regions of ihc earth's
surface now submerged were once dry
I'land. but also that on the bottom of
the Atlantic lie graphic fcanircs of
what may fairly be called a sunken
continents, J he exact position and
outlines of this lost land are matters
still under discussion, but its existence
can hardly be disputed.
However, when we pass from this
general admission of the former exist
ence of an Atlantic continent to the
particulars of Plato's legend of At
lantis we encounter something not ac
cordant with scientific knowledge.
Plato pictures Atlantis as a land bril
liant with a civilization and art sur
passing even those of Greece.
He tells of splendid cities, of wise
laws, of admirable social and political
institutions, of great mechanical
achievements, and other things utter
ly inconsistent with the physical and
mental characteristics of the human
race as archaeology has revealed that
race to us during its earliest known
existence upon the earth
Plato's Atlantis was a kind of so
phisticated Eden, but science has
been unable to find any indications
of a period in man's history when he
was particularly suited to inhabit any
kind of Eden except a savage one.
The tremendous catastrophe which
the ancient legend :ays caused the
sudden disappearance of Atlantis
must have occurred ages before the
chain of recorded history began to be
linked up. Every fact gathered by
science concerning early man consis
tently and persistently testifies that
the farther we go back the lower was
his condition, the more bcastlike his
form and the more animal-like his in
telligence. How, then, is it possible for science
to accept the Platonic legend of At
lantis, as the home of men superior
even to the Greeks of the golden age
of Athens? In view of all that
science knows at present about this
subject it would be. more reasonable
to affirm that the inhabitants of At
lantis lived in caves, or in trees, and
possessed virtually no arts and but a
low degree of intelligence.
If, on the contrary, they were what
Plato pictured them, whence did they
derive they civilization? This is a
question that lies outside the fence
of science, in the wild, flowery mead
ows of legend, where the butterflies
of the imagination dazzle the eyes
and confuse the reason with a maze
of scintillant fancies,
An.d yet it is from just such un
cultivated wastes that (he future
fields of science, must be redeemed,
and some time we may get a trust
worthy light on this very question,
which now seems so insolvable. The
suggestions of the imagination
should never be thrown aside un
tested. It has been suggested, for instance,
that the legend of Atlantis, whic.li
Plato says he did, not invent (and,
indeed, we know he did not), was1 an
original form of the story of the
flood, and that the Eden which the
ancient scripture writers had dimly
Detore tneir minds was situated on
the island, or continent, of Atlantis.
With the submergence of Atlantis
in consequence of a great earth
throe, the race that had once inhabit
ed Paradise disappeared, except a
few survivors, who reached the

Whether these supposed survivors
encountered an autochthonous race
of men in Europe, still in a savage
state, with whom they mingled, or
whether tlicy found themselves
alone in a new world, they introduced
i the seeds of change. It is a singu
i lar fact, worth recalling here, that,
, as far as we know, the earliest scats
i of human occupation- in Europe were
in Spain and southern trance, the
nearest land to the supposed site of
the lost Atlantis.-
Indistinctly we are able to trace
the coming of a new and superior

and some of the specimens of art
and handiwork left by this race arc
of surprising excellence, although
thry do not indicate civilization in
our sense, liut the facial types and
the size and shape of the skulls show
an almost startling resemblance to
those of today.
The practically world-wide prev

almos! destroyed mankind, the equal
ly widespread traditions of former
superior races, the stories heard by
early American explorers of the mys
terious visits by white men and wise
men, coming 110 one knew from
whence; these may all be connected
with the Atlantis legend, and some
time may assume such a form and
consistency that science will be able
to handle them.
